Two people were killed and two others injured after two separate crashes in Saskatchewan over the weekend.

The first crash happened around 12:30 p.m. at the intersection of highways 16 and 303.

RCMP said an eastbound SUV on Highway 16 attempted to make a left turn across the westbound lanes onto Highway 303 when hit was struck by a westbound car.

An elderly passenger in the SUV was declared dead at the scene. Her name has not been released.

The two male drivers were air lifted by STARS to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon with critical injuries. There is no update on their condition.

The second crash happened early Saturday morning on Highway 13.

A westbound Chevrolet Avalanche rolled about 7 kilometres west of Arcola after the driver lost control and entered the ditch.

The 25-year-old driver was declared dead at the scene. His name has not been released.

Mounties continue to investigate both crashes.
